Today is Saturday, November 12. And, oh, wow! I just noticed that it's already 4:30 and I'm just now starting on today's post. Sigh. Late again.
I spent the morning trying to figure out my projects for stamp club. The December meeting is our annual Christmas party and recipe swap, so I was trying to put together my ideas for that... plus, I didn't complete a project for November or for October, so I'm behind! I'd like to get caught up, so that'll be my task for the next few days or so. Fortunately, I guess, I have quite a few cards in the queue ready to share with you so if I take a week or more to get these cards for stamp club done you won't have to "suffer". (haha!)
In the early afternoon, we attended the wedding of our pastor's daughter.
They did one thing that I don't recall seeing before. There were three vessels of different colored sand. They poured the white sand into a larger container, signifying the Holy Spirit as the foundation of their marriage, and then added two other colors of sand (I think red and blue) simultaneously so they blended together a bit and that represented each of them and their oneness with each other. Being a visual person, I appreciate graphic representations of big concepts. :)
Since I'm running so late, I contemplated not putting any scripture in today's post... but that just seems wrong, so here it is.
"...it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him."
I can't imagine what it must be like to go through life without believing in God. How hopeless things must seem without a firm foundation of faith. For me, the peace I receive from knowing the Lord is more than enough to get me through each and every day. I pray that you have that same experience. Remember, He rewards those who earnestly seek Him!
I mentioned earlier that our pastor's daughter got married today. Here is the card I made for the happy couple.
Funny how things look so good until I photograph them and see them on the screen. Now that I look at this card, it appears that the house is slightly crooked. Oh, well. It's still handmade with love specifically for Kelsey and Jordan and I hope that counts for something. :)
AND TELL: stamps are from Papertrey Ink (Love Lives Here); cardstock is from PTI (Stampers Select White); ink is Stampin' Up (Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Almost Amethyst, Chocolate Chip); die from PTI's Love Lives Here set.
We have a bit of excitement planned for tomorrow. If all is going well in the morning, we're planning to head uptown after church and attend our first Panthers game of the year. We've given our tickets away for every other game, but I've been feeling so well this week that it seems like a good time to give a game a try. I, of course, will let you know how it goes.
Well, it's time to get started on other stuff now. The DVR list is begging to be attended to. :) Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I'll look forward to visiting with you more tomorrow. Love and hugs to you!
